Install a sniffer (Ethereal, or ...) on at least the server in question, and if possible on the client's system that's failing. Capture until failure occurs, and then analyze the traces. (Make sure the clocks on both systems are sync'd to an NTP source so timestamps match up.) Also, your server may have some kind of trace facility, and your application should be instrumented to record (in debug mode) the transfers at as granular a level as possible. That's a start, anyway :-) Good luck, -- Hassan Schroeder ----------------------------- hassan at webtuitive.com Webtuitive Design === (+1) 408-938-0567 === http://webtuitive.com dream. code.
